Did YOU figure out the Gnommish alphabet?

I figured out the Gnommish alphabet by comparing the page in the 1st book to its translation. But then I relized it was on the internet!! :laughing: I was just wondering...

I just found the translation in the Fowl Files. But I was too lazy to figure out what the text on the bottom of the pages was, so I looked it up. :laughing:

At least one book I worked out from chapter titles, though I've also used the key in TAFF, other passages that were dual-rendered in the text, a combination of frequency analysis and remembering a few of the vowels from the last time I worked it out, and looking it up on the net.
Like Tolkien's creatures.

Due to it not supporting png transparency properly, my avatar will appear to have a light grey background if you use IE6. That's not what it's supposed to look like.

I was going to try solving it, but my friend who told me about AF had looked it up so I was kind of bored with doing it by myself.. :(

I found it at the end pages of Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony. Though I think mine might have been a special edition, so the pages might have been bonus pages. So I now have my very own Gnommish alphabet! :laughing: I really want to read Artemis Fowl files! But its not at my library.

I got it off the AFFiles, but I only really checked that out a few times - it's at my local library. Still, now I've got it off by heart! It's really useful for diaries when you're writing down something that you don't want to reach the wrong hands!
Thankyou for my avvie, Rain! I luv it!!! :laughing:

I figured out most of it from the first book (comparing the pages) but not all of the letters were in there, so I looked those up. (this was before I got the Artemis Fowl Files)

I've decoded the first four books gnommish on the bottom, still working on the other two. It's so much fun to decode them. I also installed the gnommish into my microsoft word so I can type in it. :laughing:

THAT IS SO COOL! :shiny: I can read gnommish without a key now, and I can also write in it. It actually only took me like 20 minutes to learn it. I'm good at remembering stuff like that.

I installed Gnommish too! That and the font used on the chapter headings. :) Just in case I need a sinister feel to a school project. :D

I love gnommish! I use it to pass time at class and as a font in my laptop!
After reading AF, my classmate saw me reading the book and said that she knew the codes beneath the page. So she printed me a decoder and I started decoding. I also memorized it. I even wrote down what was written in the books.

Sarah myy BF,
As you know (or maybe you don't?) I learned gnommish from the Files, but I only wrote it down. Then I started making very many signs to put on my window in gnommish and since I did that so much, I just got the alphabet down in my head. So basically the AFF helped me but I did it mostly myself.

I read the translations on the internet (Ohmi the 6th book totally cracked me up) and have the alaphabet in Fowl Files, and am trying to get up the motivation to learn it.
